“They say the best way to make God laugh is to tell him your plans for your life. That doesn’t mean we shouldn’t plan, but we should always be flexible.”

Bio courtesy of courtneyrlogan.com:
Courtney R. Logan was born March 20, 1986, and the world has tried to deny him since. Growing up in a brutal environment, the choices were very clear. Either fall victim to circumstances or create a way out even when no exit signs existed. However, failure was never an option, and becoming a statistic was never his destiny. At a young age he decided that his future would not be shaped in the horrifying image of his past. Thus, he set the standard in his life at excellence, and dared life to stop him as he climbed to reach each goal.
While his accolades are many, Courtney is just an average guy with extraordinary vision, willpower, and courage. He is a overcomer that wants to use his experiences in life to motivate, inspire, and enlighten people through the art of words. He is passionate about telling his story. Given the chance, his words will transform people from the inside out. Always remembering, that the real power in this world: comes from within.
Please welcome Courtney Logan to this episode of The Circuit of Success!
